Quadrupel is La Trappe’s heaviest ale with a stunning amber colour. Its warm and intense flavour is rich and finely balanced. Malty sweet, slightly burnt, and pleasantly bitter with a sweet aftertaste. Quadrupel continues to ferment after bottling and offers aromas of banana, almond, vanilla and others.

raoulvos (15) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 5, 2014
amber gold colour with thin white head. smells of raisins, honey, banana, bitterkoekjes, caramel, yeast and malt. Taste is sweet vanilla and banana with a spicy kick, boozy alcohol, nice bitterness and long lasting balanced sweetness with a full intens mouthfeel and prickly lively carbonation. Delish

KoNrRiI (475) - Århus, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2014
0.75 bottle. Slightly hazy, amber color with a strong reddish hue and a small, nearly-white head. A complex aroma archetypal to Belgian abbey brews including citruses, malts, spices, bananas, quite strong notes of alcohol, some caramel, and dark fruits. Taste basically follows it with sweet maltiness, spices, fruits, and citruses; alcohol strongly marks its presence - in this respect many other beers hide or adapt a high alcohol content thus producing a much tastier result; here it’s running wild. Full body, very creamy texture, and an average carbonation. Finish is milder, less intrusive, and more balanced - perhaps all of these qualities result from a more controlled alcohol presence, but nevertheless it works out quite well. Overall the beer is is really good, although I can’t help the feeling it would be even better if it wasn’t for the unhindered alcohol present in the taste.

Desverger (2163) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2014
Bottle from Super Brugsen - fuzzy amber pour with a persistent off-white head. Aroma and taste is sweet malty, caramel, nutty, barnyard yeasty, light banana, dark dried fruits, nice spicy bite on the palate, smooth mouthfeel and warming soft boozy finish. Gorgeous.

TtV (89) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 2, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2014 Bottle 33cl. Brown with whitish head that fades. Aroma has sweetness and alcohol. Taste has alcohol too, but there?s a sympathetic sweetness too. But I can’t help to feel like it’s a bit chemical. Maybe for cold winter evenings?

Dzhigga (128) - Kirov, RUSSIA - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle. Brown honey color with fluffy big head (disappears fast). Aroma of apple, yeasty, old wine like. Taste is full with different notes. Full-bodied beer (22%!). Nice long aftertaste, but anyway this beer is close to strong alcohol. Only small sips.
